Although he is polite, modest, and circumspect in manner (as described on the previous page), Hugh Hefner actually has a lot of courage and drive, as discussed below. He may feel like Clark Kent at times! Underneath his quiet, unassuming appearance is a much more dynamic individual.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle your way through life, depending upon no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence, and courage. Hugh Hefner believes in being totally honest, true to oneself and one's own vision and convictions, even if that means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor, and authenticity are Hefner's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Hugh Hefner craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Hugh likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Hugh Hefner loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes, and bring in some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are like death to him. He is not afraid of trying something that's never been done before, and even though he may be seen as a fool sometimes, Hugh Hefner also discovers, invents, and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Hefner, and he wilts (or get very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic, and assertive. Hugh Hefner believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he thinks of his as a strong person - even invincible. Hugh Hefner hates being ill or in any way in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and has less facility in the receptive arts of relating to others, picking up subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing, and harmonizing. Often he is so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas, and feelings would go a long way in improving Hefner's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Hugh Hefner to be rather insensitive, and to therefore alienate others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his ends by using anger or some version of a temper tantrum. Hugh Hefner would gain much by learning to slow down, relax, and just let things be sometimes, but his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Hugh Hefner to do this.
Hugh Hefner invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Hugh feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Hugh Hefner can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to him at just the right time. Because Hugh Hefner is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate successes in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Hugh should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful, or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music, and mysticism. His spiritual values color Hugh's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Hugh Hefner has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance he has to overcome. Whatever he does, he knows what he wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
